Cabin Fever DVD Trailer


The Black Crowes made old-fashioned Southern rock during an era when forward-looking musical styles were far more popular. Nonetheless, since their 1990 debut, this Georgia band, led by frontman Chris Robinson and his guitarist brother Rich, have proven to be a popular touring act, churning out sensual blues-rock that recalls the Rolling Stones and other classic-rock groups.

Editorial Reviews

Like the Black Crowes themselves, the greatest-hits collection A Tribute to a Work in Progress hearkens back to the good old days of best-of collections: you get a bunch of songs you've probably heard on the radio a million times and that's it. These are arguably the group's best songs, but there are no unreleased outtakes or remixes to force rabid collectors to purchase the disc for the sake of two songs. This straightforward document of a straightforward band is also the best entryway to the group's fabulous, swaggering, ballsy, bluesy rock & roll--that is, next to their 1992 breakthrough, Southern Harmony & Musical Companion. While arranged chronologically, what one hears here is the Atlanta-based group playing great, unpretentious Stones-, Faces-, and Zep-influenced rock. This music was made for pure, visceral enjoyment, so play it really loud and dance around. --Mike McGonigal

Product Description

It's strange to see a "Greatest Hits" collection from a band that, in the eyes of many die-hard fans, seems to be the furthest thing from a "radio" or "hit singles" band. Many deadheads criticize "Skeletons In The Closet: The Best Of The Grateful Dead" for similar reasons. Similarly, fans of both bands viciously collect and trade concert bootlegs, and hardly any of these shows consist of more than one or two songs from the band's repsective compilation album.
Never the less, The Black Crowes had a successful string of singles and Mtv videos, especially during the time of their first two albums. And having been around for over 10 years, it seems like some sort of compilation album was due. As with any band's Greatest Hits compilation, this one is obviously not designed for the fan who already owns all the band's albums, but rather for the casual fan: the one who always liked what they heard from The Black Crowes on the radio or Mtv, but just never got around to buying anything from them.
So with this in mind, the CD does a very good job. The songs have been remastered, and the CD sounds consistantly good in sound quality. The liner notes show their whole album and single discography. The most well-known songs from the band come from their first two albums, and they're graciously represented here in tracks 1-8. The first 4 tracks also represent the first 4 Black Crowes videos, all of which got very fair airplay on Mtv and VH-1.
Though with the next 4 tracks, it seems a little strange that "Sting Me" was included while "Sometimes Salvation" was omitted. "Sting Me" was released as a single, but unlike "Sometimes Salvation" a video was never made for this song.

While being completely misunderstood by rock music fans and casually dismissed by critics, The Black Crowes managed to produce some high-quality rock n' roll in the 1990s. Sure, they heavily borrow their inspiration from The Rolling Stones and Faces-era Rod Stewart (not to mention Humble Pie, James Brown, Aretha Franklin and Otis Redding); but while band founders (and brothers) Chris and Rich Robinson may not be as talented as their legendary idols, when it comes to paying tribute in rock to the southern black (and white) blues/soul/country artists that influenced Jagger and Stewart, the Georgia-based Black Crowes usually more accurately and reverently hit the nail on the head, and without all of that British sarcasm. So, say what you will about The Black Crowes, but I like this band!

The Black Crowes - Greatest Hits 1990-1999: A Tribute to a Work in Progress (2000) features sixteen digitally remastered songs in chronological order, most of which even casual fans will recognize from AOR radio; the rocking Jealous Again, the sorrowful She Talks To Angels, the soulful Remedy, the gospel-tinged Thorn In My Pride, their energetic hit cover of the Otis Redding classic Hard To Handle, and more.

This compilation is a worthwhile venture for casual fans or for the Black Crowes faithful who want remastered versions of these songs or need to fill gaps of missing songs in their BC collections. The song selection here is solid, and this high-energy and soulful rock n' roll can really get you up and shakin' what you've got. The Black Crowes may never be the world's greatest rock n' roll band, but it's not for the lack of effort. These guys always put 110% into every song!

I will not forgive you
Nor will I accept the blame
I will see you on Good Friday

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Stuff July 16, 2000
Format:Audio CD
If you are a fan of old time rock 'n' roll, or southern rock, or blues rock then this cd is for you. That is, if you don't already own a substantial part of the Black Crowes catalog. As with all other "best of" albums that don't feature any new or previously unreleased material, this is an album for fans looking to get into the Black Crowes that own none or very few of their albums. It's not for the fan who already has everything, except, of course, to complete your collection. No one can argue with the excellent music on here (Jealous Again, She Talks To Angels, Remedy, Go Faster, etc.), but it's useless if you already own the songs. For people just getting into the band however (like me) it is a must-buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Crowes do "Greatest Hits" right July 18, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I want to disagree with the previous review that complains about not having any live or unreleased tracks on this Greatest Hits album. I think the Black Crowes honor their fans by NOT making them shell out full price to get a couple of new songs along with a bunch they already own. I just wish this was a more common practice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Rock Renewed On Black Crowes' Greatest Hits CD September 4, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Nirvana and "Smells Like Teen Spirit" received all credit in late 1991 for rinsing five years of "Poison"-ous teenyboppers, plastic rappers and costumed criminals off the charts. But the Black Crowes' "Jealous Again," released a year earlier, re-opened the floodgates for blues-based, classic-honed hard rock for adults.

That track starts this greatest hits CD, as straightforward and unpretentious as the Crowes' music has been the last 10 years. Their best known tunes (the snarling "Remedy," the original, power-packed cover of Otis Redding's "Hard To Handle," the Rod Stewart swagger of "Good Friday" and "Thorn In My Pride") are presented chronologically, telling the group's story from smash beginnings to occassional meanderings (the earnest but less successful tracks from 1994's "Amorica" and 1996's "Three Snakes And One Charm") to triumphant return with 1998's "By Your Side" and the slamming "Kickin' My Heart Around."

Vocalist Chris Robinson, his brother, p!artner and occasional foil Rich, and the assorted musicians and producers who've cooped with the Crowes extend a blues-rock tradition reaching back 35 years, from the Yardbirds to Free to Humble Pie (Chris wears his Pie influences on his shirtsleeve - literally) to Faces to Foghat. They energize and refresh classic rock ingredients, a fact not lost on genre giant, Jimmy Page. (His LP and tour with the Crowes invigorated his career.)

"A Tribute To A Work In Progress..." is a hits collection with integrity, and one of the better such albums recently released. It's recommended for those owning the group's catalogue; essential for everyone else.
